Contrast

Without color, an image has less ways of differentiating the elements that make up its composition. If you turn an image black and white then the subject will fade into rest of the details. In the case of portraits if subject is clearly distinct from the background then it’s black and white version will give it new vision.

Mood

Texture

Why you should use our black and white presets?

When to use black and white presets? Here are some of our recommendations:

  1. When the light calls for it.
    The quality of the light has a huge impact on decision to convert a picture to black and white. For example, a subject that is lit from the front with even light will not convert as well as a nicely side-lit subject. The evenly lit picture will lack dimension.
  2. When the shadows of the subject are present.
    Shadows add magic and interest to a picture and converting a photo to black and white
  3. When they’re images of the heart.
    Taking away all of the colour leaves the viewer with a raw and soulful image. These are the photos that pull at your heartstrings, the ones that make you feel like you are witnessing a private moment
  4. When there’s movement.
    Pictures with motion are the pictures that bring you right back to that moment and as a viewer, make you feel like you are right there living that moment.
  5. When the photo is timeless.
    Black and white picture seems timeless and have sense of nostalgia, thinking how timeless they were.
